Hinorno Festival 2009

September 15, 2009

Ronda Cebu Philippines will celebrates the first Hinorno Festival on September 15, 2009. This is to honor the municipality town patron saint, Virgen de Soledad. This first Hinorno Festival 2009 will not be possible without the support of the local government of Ronda Cebu headed by Mayor Estaban R. Sia and specially to Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia, provincial Governor of Cebu.

Ronda Cebu was called before a "HULYAW", a banana plant which grew abundantly along the banks of the settlement and a picturesque little city in Andalucia of Southern Spain, which is surrounded by an amphitheater of rugged mountains. It has been originated with a popular legendary story of Jolo, a pirates from Jolo who came out to plunder his village to loot and run away with properties and kidnap natives, who would be heard shouting “Jolo, ayaw!” or "Jolo don't.

There are two reasons why the town so-called name Ronda. First, Ronda before was a favorite hiding place of insurrectos or rebels and the law enforcers would raid (Ronda in Spanish) the town, while the 2nd reason which is more plausible one, is that the early Spaniards proposed the name because the place strikingly resembled Ronda in Spain. Both places are between highlands.

The first Hinorno Festival of Ronda Cebu is the festival of all people on Rondahanons. They will offer a thanksgiving of their patron saint, Virgen de Soledad for being abundant and rich of the bananas in the town.

Happy Fiesta Ronda, ug mag Hinorno nata!!!
